Instagram is one of the fastest growing, most exciting social networks in history. The mobile photo- and videosharing app, which launched in October of 2010, now boasts 300 million monthly active users, 70 million photos posted each day, and 2.5 billion Likes per day.=

The top brands in the world have seen 11% more engagement per post in Q4 than they did in Q3; another sign that the network continues to reach bigger and bigger audiences.

This incredible growth has shaken up the way social marketers think about visual content, marketing to mobile audiences, and the possibilities therein. Today, 86% of top brands have Instagram accounts, up from 71% last year.
